Inmate Was Offered Money to Kill Ghislaine Maxwell in Jail, Lawyers Claim

Lawyers for Ghislaine Maxwell say her cellmate has claimed multiple times that she has been offered money to kill Jeffrey Epstein’s child sex trafficking accomplice.

Maxwell’s attorney’s made the stunning allegation in a Wednesday court filing where they requested a lighter sentence.

Authorities are recommending a 20-year sentence for the convicted sex trafficker.

She will meet her fate and be sentenced on June 28.

In court papers filed in Manhattan federal court, her lawyers said: “Ghislaine Maxwell is not an heiress, villain, or vapid socialite.

“She has worked hard her entire life.

“She has energy, drive, commitment, a strong work ethic, and desire to do good in the world.”

Her lawyers also blamed her actions on a “difficult, traumatic childhood with an overbearing, narcissistic, and demanding father.”

The filing claims:

“One of the female inmates in Ms. Maxwell’s housing unit told at least three other inmates that she had been offered money to murder Ms. Maxwell and that she planned to strangle her in her sleep.

“This incident reflects the brutal reality that there are numerous prison inmates who would not hesitate to kill Ms. Maxwell — whether for money, fame, or simple ‘street cred,’” Maxwell’s lawyers said.
